Hey everybody,

We are new here and, my husband and me are trying to file for i130 and i485 together, we've been together for 7 years, both going back and forth and at one point living in my country for three years. We decide to get married in April, and we are trying to fill the forms right now, which at times seem pretty confusing.

Our biggest issue right now is that we don't know how to go about the name, I would like to have my husbands last name and change my first name if possible, we read a lot of people just fills the forms with the married name they want and put their maiden on "other". I've looked everywhere on the i485 and didn't find "other name". All my documentation is obviously on my maiden name, but we read a lot of people submits the forms with their desired name. I would want to have my husband's name, it would mean a lot to me.

I'm not sure how to go about it, we didn't get the option when we got married to change it. We are in the state of Delaware, we looked into changing the name, but it said it had to be done through DMV or SSA.. I can't do either cause I'm not a resident and I don't have a ssn. Any help is deeply appreciated! Thank you in advance!

It is to my understanding that your green card will match your passport. 

In my case, we filled in everything in my married name and when we got CC the system changed into my maiden name, as I haven't changed my passport.

However, I'm doing CR-1, perhaps it is different for AOS.


Good luck! :)
